If you’re considering a career as a doctor, physicians assistant, or nurse, VACorps offers an excellent selection of medical internships in South Africa. As a medical intern in our program, you will be working alongside qualified healthcare professionals at a community healthcare clinic in the public sector. South Africa faces many serious healthcare issues, including high rates of HIV/AIDS, TB, and trauma. There is a high demand for primary healthcare in low-income areas of the city and many public hospitals and clinics lack appropriate funding to address the needs of Cape Town most vulnerable communities. The overall experience will give you first-hand access to South Africa’s public healthcare system and will teach you a wide-range of skills that you’ll carry with you for a lifetime. Our medical internships are specifically well-suited to students in a pre-medical, pre-PA, or nursing school students.
